UP CM Yogi Adityanath has ordered an investigation into the Yash Bharti award, given to the likes of Amitabh Bachchan, Naseeruddin Shah and Nawazuddin Siddique.
There have been allegations that the award, which carries Rs. 11L cash and Rs. 50,000 monthly pension, was being given out randomly during Akhilesh Yadav's rule.
If "misuse" is found, the monthly pension would reportedly be cancelled.
